Apocalypto takes early Box Office lead

Despite some critics claiming Apocalytpo was not high concept enough (not every film can be Apocalypse Now), movie audiences look to have found something to like in Mel Gibson’s latest action adventure flick. Deadline Hollywood blog reports that Apocalypto has taken the Box Office lead based on early Friday returns. There is a reason Gibson’s previous directoral efforts have done so well at the box office, he knows how to craft a film that audiences want to see. He may be a bit unclear on the whole drinking and driving thing, but hopefully he’s working on that.
